Am really enjoying target shooting. While nearly none of my friends understand this, I find it fun to go plinking with pals, or as a solitary past time. I like that it requires a lot of discipline and concentration. I enjoy challenging myself to achieve greater bull's eye accuracy.
Picked this up at a pawn shop and spent a lot of time cleaning it up. Talk about filthy. Once clean, took it to the range and ran 100 rounds through it. Without really taking much time to sight, this was my 1st time result:
I wanted to take time to sight it, but was so excited to just see that it ran well, I just focused on seeing if there were any failure to feeds, or other issues with how the pistol functioned. No FTFs, no issues at all. Ran great. Except for the fact that the rear site is loose and eventually fell out. It's a non-CZ site. I'll have to buy a normal one from the company & get it fitted.
Here's little Walther p22:
This little plinker has a very tactical look to it and is both cheap and fun to shoot. It is not an accurate piece--but is still fun to practice with. For accuracy in a stand-alone pistol, I should probably have purchased a Ruger .22. But I was won over by looks--and that's not always the best reason to purchase a pistol as it turns out... ;)
